Keywords: information and communication technology, city, ICT

Abstract

This article is aimed at investigating the role of information and communication technology (ICT) in the city. After a broad overview of the possibilities of ICT from a geographical perspective, as well as of the impact thereof on urban policy with regard to the ICT sector, the investigation is focussed on urban public policy concerning the ICT sector. The hypothesis is made that urban ICT policy is, to a large extent, directed by 'soft' factors, like image and perception, which significantly influence the decisions made by municipal governments.
